Installation Instructions for Hot Fix B04018

Solaris for x64

Hot fix B04018 addresses the issue(s) in SAS Management Console 9.2_M2 on Solaris for x64 as documented in the Issue(s) Addressed section of the hot fix download page:


  1. You must have SAS Management Console 9.2_M2 installed on your system before applying this hot fix. Refer to SN-35968 for instructions on how to determine which product releases you have installed.

  2. Files delivered in this hot fix will be backed up during the installation process. However, it is good general practice to back up your system before applying updates to software.

  3. You must have Administrator Privileges on your CLIENT or SERVER machine.

  4. All currently active SAS sessions, daemons, spawners and servers must be terminated before applying this hot fix.

  5. This hot fix should be installed using the same userid who performed the initial software installation.


1. The installer downloaded is B04018sx.bin.

When downloading SAS 9.2 hot fix packages, you must choose to Save the hot fix to disk, then execute the install from the saved location. Attempting to install a hot fix directly from the download page results in the error documented in SAS Note 37104.

Verify that the installation binary has execute permission. If it does not, use the chmod command to make it executable.

$> chmod 755 B04018sx.bin
2. Set your $DISPLAY environment variable
export DISPLAY=<your_node_name>:0
3. Execute B04018sx.bin
    For example:

This will initiate the installation wizard, which will guide you through the hot fix installation process. During the installation you will be prompted for the SASHOME location to be updated. You should provide the path to the top level SAS directory where the deploymntreg directory exists.

See the Maintenance Installation Tool (MIT) documentation for more details on the installation of hot fixes.

NOTE: It is necessary to perform Steps 3 and 4 only one time from a single install of SAS Management Console. Also, if you have installed any previous versions of this SAS Management console hot fix you do not need to repeat the "Update Metadata" Step on your SAS environment.
  1. You must install co-requisite Hot Fix C01005 in addition to this Hot Fix, B04018, to fully implement the fix for SN-39395.
    Both hot fixes should be installed before proceeding to Step 2.

  3. Invoke SAS Management Console.

  4. Select SAS Management Console > Environment Management > Metadata Manager > Active Server > Upgrade Metadata

This completes the installation of hot fix B04018 on Solaris for x64.
